Default Fake Shimano?

Do they make fake Shimano reels? Look at this price for a new reel.

It's a seller that has no reviews and has only posted these reels. Makes me suspicious.

I was going to buy one just to see what happens... but it definitely looks like a scam.

Most likely a scam... It's almost sold out though (9 out of 10).

I did ask him a question and he never answered it.

Too many red flags on this deal. Good luck to those who bought one.
